If they opened in an IE/Explorer browser it's because IE is not color managed.

A MacBeth chart showing the ugliness of sRGB desaturaion:
I believe ACR may have honored the AdobeRGB tag that your camera may have been set for (... altho you could have selected aRGB, PpRGB). The result would have been the same as what povimage describes above, altho to a lesser extent than PpRGB being the color space.
In any case, all images destined for the web or non-CM-savvy apps shopuld be saved with sRGB being the color space.
Ok, that makes sense. So how can I tell it to save with sRBG? Is there a box to check? Where?
Ya I just checks and when I save them, they are saved as AdobeRGB. So now I need to tell it to change that?
Ok I found the spot to change it and the images look great! Thank you so much everyone. In case anyone else is reading this with the same problem here are the steps I took:
Open the jpeg image in ACR.
Make the changes you want.
At the bottom of the ACR window there is a highlighted link that says something like "Adobe RGB (1998); 8 bit; 3008 by 2000 (6.0MP); 240ppi"
Click on this like and change the "Space" drop down box from "Adobe RGB" to "sRGB."
When this change is made, go ahead and save it like normal.
Now the image looks the way it did in ACR in all other programs.
IM SO HAPPY!!!!! :)
There is a blue hyperlink beneath the main image preview screen. Click on that hyperlink and you will be presented with a dialog where you can set that and other options. looks like you beat me to it. :)
